Fresh Market to open Durham location

Aug. 06, 2014 @ 05:02 PM

A Fresh Market will open in the former Food Lion location at 4215 University Drive this winter.

The store will be the first in Durham. Fresh Market nearest location now is at 1200-A Raleigh Road in Chapel Hill. The new location will be inside Parkway Plaza, where Garden Ridge recently opened an At Home store in the former Kmart space.
Both Food Lion and Kmart closed last year.
Brian Reece, managing partner at research firm Karnes, said both locations are currently hiring.
Rivercrest Realty, which manages Parkway Plaza, as well as The Fresh Market’s PR firm, declined to comment on the location.
But, filings with the city show various construction projects listed as “tenant build out for the Fresh Market” at 4215 University Drive.
